Holiday Challenge


Its the season for holiday magic and miracles. The challenge this time is simple. Incorporate some sort of magic or miracle into your thread - or both. Make it a very special occasion for your PC, something they won't forget for the whole of their lives. You can work with other PCs on this challenge, but the standard thread rules apply... a thread must be at least 2500 words long, include the theme(s), and must be posted completely finished no later than 12/27 at 10 pm PST.

Sign up below if you intend to do it before the deadline to let everyone know you are going to participate. I'll need a link to the thread, a small summary, and word count. Remember, we need active players right now and participating in challenges really really helps. As always, I will be awarding a special holiday prize pack to everyone who completes the challenge.

Tazrae unexpectedly and abruptly looses her innocence, gains a new family, and becomes a mage. She is inducted into Reimancy and has no idea how to feel about all of it.

I'm going to give it a whirr and see how it goes :D

Since I don't have anything lined up to learn magic I may as well have magic done to me...right?

Word Count:4,715

A little hypnotism, a lot of illusion and you get a pretty neat out of body...interbody? experience.

What starts as a simple question about stones and wood turns into a journey with her great grandmother. Rohka learns details about her family history and a stone transmits a message to her from her great grandfather. It is the experience that shapes her mission in present time, and perhaps even her destiny.

Moritz = 300 GM
Tazrae = 1300 GM
Alice = 400 GM
Rohka = 500 GM

Twilight Star


After the peak of the Winter Solstice, a star always appears in the southern sky that shines brightly for only one single morning. It appears at the twilight when the sky first starts to lighten and vanishes as Syna climbs into the sky and chases the light of all the stars from the sky. In the olden days, before the Valterrian, the star was called Vastimi which loosely translates into the Ancient Tongue as "Offspring". Due to its name, it has long been assumed it shines in some sort of remembrance or honor of one of Zintila's children.

Astronomers claim the behavior of this object means it isn't truly a star, but is something far different; something unknown. While it briefly shines, Vastimi gives off sparks that fall to Mizahar in the form of true Skyglass. Skyglass, a material crafted by magic, is not found in nature. Traditional skyglass is transformed by the Constellations using Akarni, from meteorites that fall to Mizahar's surface. Pre-formed Skyglass only comes from Vastimi and only on one day of the year... The Winter Solstice. These incredibly precious items are called Twilight Stars.

Finding a Twilight Star is considered incredibly lucky and a blessing from the Gods. Twilight Stars are often passed down through families because they are rarely destroyed despite their fragile appearance. Looking like a carved three-dimensional crystalline star the size of an average man's fist, these beautiful objects have multiple uses. Hung in sunny windows as sun catchers, these stars often can fill a room with a rainbow of refracted light, even on a cloudy day.

Lofted in the high peaks of a ceiling, these Twilight Stars glow in the darkness and gently illuminates space all around them. They make lovely luminaries that can light up an entire room or guide a lost traveler in the dark of night home.

A third and often overlooked value to the twilight stars is that if one person holds the star and thinks about how they feel about something, another person can reach out and touch that star and clearly and truly see what the other person is feeling. These stars are precious, traded frequently within black markets and in back alley deals.

Your PC may acquire this item, but they can only do so by going out into the early morning on the 21st of Winter, witnessing the star, and having it give off a spark in thread that your PC can track down and collect. These items cannot be gifted, traded, or sold. To have one, you must acquire it in thread within 30 days of this post. Please post a link to the thread you acquired your twilight star below and I will add it to your CS.

Moritz claimed the Twilight Star in the thread here.

Thanks for the reward, was fun acquiring it and was even able to work it in with another plot/reward! Quite an interesting one.
